Hi there. I used to make custom joysticks here a little while ago.
Anyways, I was working on a quick joystick to play SF4 with and decided that the design was quick and easy enough that I can produce these in a speedy timeframe for others to enjoy. I am a full time student along with a part time job so I stopped making joysticks from before, but this new process is fast enough with good enough results that I hope others out there will be interested.
Here’s the deal:
Slim Wood box (12.5"x6.5"x2.5") with painted lexan panel (attached with countersunk screws - bottom side of panel is painted, leaving the top shiny and clear)
Hinges & latch for easy access inside the box
Rubber bumpers on the bottom
Xbox360: wired using xbox360 controllers
OR (not both)
PS3: wireless using Sony PS3 controllers
Sanwa JLF joystick
Sanwa 30mm OBSF/N buttons (or select Seimitsu parts, refer to order form)
Sanwa 24mm buttons x3 (for start/select/home) (select Seimitsu parts available, check order form)
What is customizable:
-Color of painted lexan (depending on availability)
-Colors of Joystick and buttons (depending on availability)
I will not be doing custom configurations for this joystick. It will be in the Sega/Japanese layout.
Custom art is welcome, but you must provide the artwork at specified dimensions and resolution - it will be $5 extra over just painted lexan. I will provide details when needed.
Total price will be $185 shipped by UPS including delivery confirmation & signature to the 48 states. I will not be taking international orders.
Fully tested to work before shipping.
XBOX360 INFO: HEADSET PORT WILL REMAIN ON CONTROLLER PCB - I WILL DRILL A GROOVE TO ALLOW HEADSET CABLE TO COME OUT FROM BOX W/O GETTING IN THE WAY. BOX IS ON HINGES AND VERY EASY TO OPEN FOR ACCESS.
I will only be taking 2 orders at a time due to my own time constraints. Orders are expected to be completed and shipped out in 2 weeks (including time to receive parts from suppliers). HOWEVER, keep in mind this is from receiving payment, not before. I will only start the order once payment is made in full through Paypal. Please keep in mind that orders can and will be delayed if suppliers (like Lizardlick, as is the case at the moment) are delayed on their end. I will keep you notified of the status of your order.
At the moment I’m waiting on Lizardlick to get me some parts I ordered, so I can only show what the box looks like with the colored lexan panel & sanwa buttons. It is a little rough around the edges as it is the prototype that I am making for my own use. In this case, it is a black panel with green & red buttons.
Pictures will be updated with completed stick once the parts arrive.
Thanks for looking. Send me a PM if you’re interested.
